It's not going to stop

Was talking to my teenage daughters tonight about yesterday's murders. It dawned on me that all this talk about cause and effect, about Iraq, about Islam, about Bush and Blair is missing the point. The forces that drove those cunts to bomb London yesterday - whoever you believe did it, and personally I am extremely sceptical about the existence, much less the involvement, of "al-Qaeda" - are so irrational, so beyond our comprehension that we might as well try to prevent the weather from happening. So my kids will live in a world where, from time to time, dozens, hundreds, thousands of people will be blown up for no reason. So get used to it.
